A small Slovenian company is producing filament for 3D printing. For the present they are producing ABS filament, but they are planning to widen the production with other new and innovative materials. They are seeking distribution and commercial agency agreements and offer outsourcing or manufacturing agreements to well-established 3D printing filament production companies.
Slovenian company established in 2007, offers a wide spectrum of engineering development services for the automotive sector, production process automation services, CAD design services, production services for machines and devices made to order and manufacturing of filament for 3D printing. The production of filament started in 2015. At the moment the company produces ABS filament for 3D printing. Nowadays most of 3D printers using FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) technology process ABS or PLA. ABS is one of the standard materials used for most of the desktop printers. ABS filament is a tough material that can be used to create robust plastic objects for everyday use, electric equipment, spare parts …). ABS parts are flexible; the printed objects can be cut, filed, sanded, painted, and bonded. There are many filament producers and distributors on the market, but still 3D printing sector is growing rapidly, 3D printers are moving from factories to schools and our homes, and consequently the need for material i.e. filament is also growing. Above all the company sees its main advantage in the fact, that its filament is produced with materials (granulate) from EU and offers high quality, reliability and flexibility. The company is going to expand the spectrum of filaments with new, innovative materials. The company is looking for SMEs acting as distributors or commercial agents for 3D printing filament and bigger companies producers of filament for 3D printing to act as their outsourcing partner for filament production.
